Rudy Giuliani turned his Twitter against former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday.

In a since-deleted tweet, President Trump’s personal lawyer made Comey into a verb — meaning to “interfere illicitly with an election.”

“This usage derived from Comey’s interference in 2016 election by irresponsible press conferences and then leaking,” Giuliani added, along with a gif of Bashful, one of Snow White’s seven dwarves.

Left unsaid was a letter Comey sent Congress in the days before the 2016 election announcing that the FBI was again looking into Hillary Clinton’s private email use, a move that many political observers believe contributed to Clinton’s loss.

Giuliani targeted Comey in another tweet still visible on his feed:
